My Thoughts:
This was my first Lisa Schroeder novel. What a heartbreaking, tragic storyline. I felt Brooklyn's pain of dealing with the loss of Lucca her boyfriend. I felt how difficult it was for her to move on with her life. To stop living in the pain and fear that everything else would be lost.  But spending time with Nico, Lucca's brother. Starts to help heal Brooklyn and Nico.

I loved that the story was told from both of the perspectives. I loved that it was in poetry verse.

I recommend checking out this novel and  the rest of Lisa's work!

5/5 stars!!

Happy Reading, Ashley
